2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Myron Pryor, DT, Kentucky

Pryor's experience is paying off in the form of a standout senior season at Kentucky. The defensive tackle played in all of the Wildcats' 11 games as a freshman in 2005, starting two. He started 10 of 12 games played in each of the past two seasons (he was suspended for the 2007 season opener due to a violation of team rules; a minor red flag) and he has now emerged as the anchor in the middle of the defensive line. Pryor led the team in tackles for loss and sacks before going down with a high ankle sprain against Arkansas. He missed ensuing games against Florida and Mississippi. The injury, however, did not come before he rumbled 72 yards for a touchdown with a fumble against Louisville in Week 1. That showcased his sub-5.00 speed in the 40-yard dash, Pryor's biggest asset as a defensive lineman. He is explosive off the ball and his combination of speed and power allows him to be a force against the passing game. Still, he is undersized (6'1 and 300 pounds) for the NFL in this day and age and he needs to improve in stopping the run in order to become a starter at the next level. Pryor has the experience to step in as a serviceable backup right away on Sundays, but probably nothing more, at least not for a while. He should go off the board sometime during Day 2 of the draft.
